Abstract
Enuresis is primarily a childhood problem that
has concerned parents and physicians since biblical
times. To our knowledge, the earliest rec<)
rded treatment approach using a combination
of juniper, cyprus and beer appeared in 1550
B.C. (Glicklich, 1951). Various factors considered
to be of etiological importance for enuresis
have been described in the literature.
Proposed etiologies are 1) genetic factors(Hallgren,
1960: Bakwin, 1961), 2) disorders of
genito-urinary tract (Mahony et aI, 1971; Jones
€I aI, 1972) , 3) disorders arising from disturbances
of early life, such as bladder training(Brazelton,
1962) , 4) disorders due to stressful life
events in early childhood (Heisel et aI, 1973) ,
5) disorders of sleep or central nervous maturity
(Camrbell et aI, 1966; Ritvo et al 1969; Petersen
et ai, 1970) , 6) psychological or psychosocial
factors (Hallgren, 1956; Werry and Cohrssen,
1960; Archenbach and Lewis , 1971). According
to these etiological hypotheses, the site of lesion
in enuresis has been placed in the psyche, brain
stem, genito-urinary system itself, or the sociofamilial
environment.
